Children Ministry Communication – May 19, 2023
As I reflect on my daughter’s school calendar, I can hardly believe that another school year is coming to an end. It is a time of transitions, as our little ones venture into Kindergarten, our kindergarteners prepare for elementary school, and our 5th graders embark on their journey into youth ministry. During this time, my heartfelt prayer is that our loving Heavenly Father will shower His blessings upon our families and empower us to be agents of His grace and light in this world.
We are reminded of the wisdom shared in Ephesians 6:4, which encourages fathers not to exasperate their children but to raise them up in the nurturing and godly instruction of the Lord. Additionally, Exodus 20:12 reminds us of the importance of honoring our fathers and mothers, as it leads to a blessed and fulfilling life in the land provided by the Lord.
Now, let’s turn our attention to some important upcoming dates for our Children Ministry:
June 11, 2023 – “Promotion Date”: On this significant day, we will warmly welcome our preschoolers to their new class, joining the kindergarteners. To our 5th graders, we will bid a fond farewell as they embark on their journey with Pastor Caleb and the youth ministry. However, please know that they will always remain an integral part of our larger community. We have organized a special ceremony during the first service hour class, which will take place from 9:30 am to 11:15 am.
June 12, 2023 – Vacation Bible School (VBS): If you haven’t already done so, we kindly encourage you to register for this year’s VBS. It promises to be an incredible experience filled with valuable lessons and enjoyable activities. We are also excited to announce that we are offering a paid and optional aftercare service, allowing for greater convenience and flexibility for families. The price for this service is truly exceptional.

Title: Hard to See You Move: A Bittersweet Goodbye to a dear family heading to the UK.
Today we face one of those bittersweet farewells. A beloved family from our Children Ministry, who were also our ministry coworkers, is moving away. The difficulty is compounded by the fact that our kids played together.
As we bid adieu, our hearts ache with a mix of sadness and hope. We say goodbye with the anticipation that this farewell is temporary, praying for a future reunion filled with love. The memories we’ve created, the laughter we’ve shared, and the support we’ve offered will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
Though it’s hard to see you go, we are grateful for the time we’ve spent together. Your presence has enriched our lives in immeasurable ways. As you embark on this new chapter, may it be filled with abundant blessings and joyous growth.
As we part ways, let us hold onto the cherished moments and the impact we’ve made on each other’s lives. While distance may separate us physically, our connection remains strong, and our thoughts and prayers go with you.
Farewell, dear friends. This goodbye marks a temporary pause in our journey together, but our brother/sister hood endures, for we are Christ’s family. With a bittersweet tone, we wish you all the best in the days ahead.
With love and heartfelt wishes,
CM Committee and Sam
